Microvascular Function and Exercise Training in Postmenopausal Women
About this study
Blood pressure rises in postmenopausal (PM) women and may be caused by widespread microvascular vasodilator dysfunction in conjunction with increased efferent sympathetic vasoconstrictor nerve activity. The goal of this study is to measure the effects of regular physical activity on vasodilator effects of acute administration of estrogen in postmenopausal women.
